For recruitment of PhD students and Postdoctoral fellows the department of Plant Microbe Interactions is holding panels, in which applicants present themselves to a committee of departmental senior scientists with a short talk on the subject of prior research accomplishments. Each talk should last about 10 minutes with an additional five minutes for questions. In a subsequent general panel discussion, the committee would like to learn more about the applicant’s research interests.

PhD Panels:

Dates will be organized individually when vacancies in one of our research groups are advertised. In addition, an application at our IMPRS Research School could result in a PhD position in one of the research groups of our department.

Postdoc Panels:

Dates will be organized individually when vacancies in one of our research groups are advertised.

You can obtain specific information on the work of the research groups of our department at Plant Microbe Interactions, Paul Schulze-Lefert. Please contact us if you would like to receive our Scientific Report with information about the four departments of our institute.

As part of our goal to foster scientific independence in our young scientists, we expect that postdoctoral researchers starting in the department actively apply for third-party funding.

Below are some opportunities which you make like to consider. Please carefully check all requirements and deadlines.

Preliminary inquiries together with a CV and a description of main research interests should be directed to the department's scientific project manager, Neysan Donnelly, at: or by regular mail to:
